It was known as the 'Bottom Pub'. It wasn't exactly where the present service station is, but a little more towards the road, so I've been told. It seems like straightening out a dog leg road curve was the benefit of its demise.

Thanks Highriser and Aberfeldie, yes I should have been a little more descriptive. It didn't stand exactly where the petrol station building or pumps are situated now,
but moreso right on the corner of King and Commercial St's (which is the entrance to the petrol station - the building and pumps are further back from the road
and not even within the area where the foundation of the pub would have extended to).

It is a shame it seems to have been lost entirely to minor road straightening, even though the originality of the building
seems to have been lost long before it's demolition.
